Research Facts
Patti (Fowlie) Clark is a graduate of the Kingston General Hospital School of Nursing, Class of 1964
Lillian S. Brunner (nee Sholtis, b. 1918), author and educator, was known nationally and internationally for her contributions to nursing practice, particularly in the area of medical surgical nursing. She graduated from the Hospital of the University of Pennsylvania, School of Nursing in 1940. She obtained a Bachelor of Science degree at the University of Pennsylvania's School of Education (Nursing Major) in 1945 and a Master of Science degree from Case Western Reserve University (Cleveland, OH) in 1947. Brunner also completed post Masters' coursework at the University of Pennsylvania's School of Education from 1960-1963. She contributed to or wrote nine books on medical or surgical nursing.
Beginning in the early 1800s, J. B. Lippincott had great success as a bookseller in Philadelphia. After a fire in 1899, the company rebuilt and found success again, and in 1960 published Harper Lee's "To Kill a Mockingbird," which went on to sell over 40 million copies.
